over at citi, but i would be happy if i were a shareholder. the stock went up on the news. never easy to change your mind. something we're asking of our politicians, they can't do that. but citigroup's management was willing to take the hard medicine for the shareholders. we hear endless negativity about china and europe, but the chinese market last night, it was a gigantic move signifying what might be the beginning of a new growth phase. have you checked european stocks lately? smoke show. hey, even i can get too gloomy. i've been critical of bank of america for its unfathomable top dollar acquisitions, including the ill-timed merrill lynch purchase and the ridiculous countrywide buy. i've chided these guys as being one gigantic law firm with a bank attached. that's how much their earnings have been dependent upon legal obligations. and that's what cuts them. bank of america led the dow today, broke out above $10. a level hasn't been seen in ages as the unsold homes dwindles, i think it probably goes higher. here's the bottom line, listen to me, go ahead, be gloomy, you have every r

stock market can go up. henry blodgett joins us from new york city. good to see you as always. >> thanks for having me. >> and obviously this is a stock that people have tremendous profits in, so to the extend they want to take advantage of lower capital gains, that makes more sense. more fundamentally, they're in sort of a product hold here. they bakley came out with everything in the last few months, we're going to go through this period where they probably won't have anything exciting to announce for a while, now the television has been delayed unit next fall, according to gene muenster. then growth is slowing, and more importantly the margin is likely to compress. that's the big thing that worries me. they're going to go to a lower marge margin of mix products. it's hard to see stocks rise in the face of a compressing market. you have downside protection unless the thing completely falls apart. so i think the valuation is actually help 68 here. >> if apple has a disappointing season, where does the stock go? >> i don't know. i think it would certainly go down. the iphone numbers have
